ne of the UK’s biggest independent timber and panel products distributor, James Latham, is

certified and fully complaint with

EUTR legislation. Offering exceptional durability and

stability, this high-performing, versatile hardwood timber - which comes from the Eucalyptus family - is also easy to machine and stain, plus, because it is plantation grown, it offers continuity of supply. James Latham’s Technical Timber Sales Development Manager, Justin Hayward explained, “We are really excited to be able to offer this product and I am confident that it will quickly become a popular choice with our customers. Red Grandis is ethically sourced; environmentally friendly and readily available and this, coupled with outstanding levels of performance in stability and

durability, ensures that it ticks all of the boxes not only for us, but for our customers.” Typical uses for Red Grandis include all

types of joinery such as windows, doors, conservatories, mouldings and cladding. It is particularly well suited to large projects such as door frames as it is supplied in long engineered lengths so it is less likely to bow and warp, this in turn reduces the need to overlap and finger joint frames. Mr Hayward added, “James Latham

has a long history and expertise in bringing new and innovative products to market and Red Grandis fits perfectly within our extensive timber portfolio which boasts one

of the largest and most varied ranges of joinery quality hardwoods and softwoods available in the UK.” Red Grandis is available in the following thicknesses as sawn timber; 25mm, 32mm, 38mm and 50mm and in widths of 150mm and wider as well as long lengths (mainly 3.7m to 4.9m). It is also offered as WoodEx®

Latham’s own premium quality, engineered hardwood and softwood timber product in all core sizes for joinery applications as clear faced and finger jointed for long lengths.

Offsite education projects handed over

schools. It demonstrates a number of new innovations which contributed to its early completion and reduced the programme by around six months compared to site-based construction. Gillian Coffey, Executive Head Teacher at the Lynch Hill Enterprise Academy said, “The facilities are terrific and the children are enjoying a fantastic new learning environment and the benefits of cutting edge design.”
